Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem preparing to spawn

There seems to be another celebrity baby craze happening at the moment, and the latest participants to catch the baby-rabies are actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.  Cruz has confirmed through a representative that she is indeed 4.5 months pregnant, which finally lays to rest the rumors that had already been floating around for some time.

It’ll be interesting to see how this issue is handled in the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, as Cruz has been pregnant during the filming, and according to some sources, is already noticeably showing.  On the other hand, I suppose any special effects are possible these days – if they can make Sigourney Weaver look eight feet tall and blue, I guess they can probably make Penelope Cruz look un-pregnant.
